  • 3LC technology along with tread patterns, optimal profiles and constructions provide linear and high performance handling for a wide range of sport bikes
  • Computer designed profiles maximize the lateral stiffness (grip) and maintain linear contact pressure at all lean angles (handling)
  • Tread pattern design achieves a noticeable reduction in tread noise
  • Convex tire profiles give quicker and lighter handling in tight corners
  • Designed for passionate riders who enjoy cornering with deep lean angles
  • Sport tire designed to maximize the performance of sport bikes on the road today

Tire Compound:

  • 3 Layer Compound (3LC) provides grip performance demanded in all riding modes
  • Center compound results in good stability and wear life
  • Shoulder compound provides grip and bump absorption
  • Silica Rich: Silica enhanced compound provides more consistent and longer lasting grip with enhanced grip in wet conditions and low temperatures
  • RC Polymer: A specific Nano Pro-Tech butadiene rubber that is specifically designed to react with silica, improving tread flexibility to provide enhanced wet traction and long wear life
  • Nano Pro-Tech: Is a Bridgestone proprietary technology that controls the interaction between polymer, filler materials (carbon black, silica) and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level


Tire Construction:

  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction: A continuous single strand of cord is wrapped around the circumference and serves as a belt of a tire, eliminating overlapping of belts, seams, and joints
  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction makes the tire lighter than conventional multi cross belt construction, has more stability since it minimizes heat generation inside the tire, and gives high shock absorption
  • High Tensile Super Penetrated Cord (HTSPC): Features a 1X5 filament, rubber insulated steel Mono-Spiral Belt allowing more flexibility than other types of the steel used by competitors, reduces heat generation, and provides stability without deteriorating shock absorption
  • Steel belt construction provides good bump absorption, grip and stability during high speed riding


Tread Pattern:

  • Rear tire has high negative ratio to enhance cornering grip and cornering stability
  • L shaped grooves enhance bump absorption and rear-end steering
  • Grooves do not cross tread center area providing both wet performance and strong traction. High speed durability is also maximized
  • 6% negative ratio maximizes dry grip and improves wear life

Excellent tire. In 2010 I used a 34 life set of BT016's on Espinazo del Diablo in Mexico (~Dragon Tale x 20) and grip cornering breaking was great! I mounted those on my now old CBR600RR 2007.
Pros: :
  • Excellent Traction

This is a great set of tires once warm they carve through the canyons with ease they have real strong grip in tight corners. They have never slipped on me and ive got over 12k miles on the tires. Got to replace the rear tire today but the front still looks brand new after 12k miles. Well worth what i paid for them.

Very Nice Tire

This is my second set of Pro's and they have been great. Used on a 2011 Hayabusa with great handling and grip. Having gone through 5 sets of tires and with the exception of the OEM BT015's these have had the best mileage. Already have 900 miles on the new tires with no flat spot.

Just put them on my Speed Triple very satisfied. They stick so good I can float the front end exiting twistys;) Bout 6000 miles on the old set excellent. If you dont mind the quirks of dual compound rubber odd profile wear causes twitchyness during attitude transitions. If you spend most of your time on the track select a single compound tire and sacrafice the mileage. If yoy play on the highways most yoy'll like them :) BK
